Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur – along with current winemaker François – was born of the marriage of Vincent Bitouzet (of Volnay) and Ann Prieur (of Meusault), bringing together two distinguished Burgundian families.

The domaine has a red cellar next door to Lafarge (who are distant cousins) and a white cellar in Meursault, with reds making up approximately 60 percent of production.

The estate’s notable vineyard holdings include a selection of the finest Premier Cru sites in Volnay and Meursault. The whites are elegant and restrained, rather than being broad-shouldered, old-fashioned Meursault. The reds are de-stemmed, with new oak kept to a modest level.

Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand and go directly into the press. The pressing operation is smooth and slow in order to extract the grapes’ best constituents. After a light settling, the musts are transferred into French oak barrels (20-25% new oak), where alcoholic fermentation (using indigenous yeasts) will take place, followed by malo-lactic fermentation. After 12-16 months’ ageing, the first racking, then a light fining, are carried out. Bottling takes place at the end of the second winter following the harvest.

Tasting Note: White gold in colour. Vanilla, honey and white flowers on the nose.
Smooth and fat on the palate, both on entry and on the finish, well-built yet always possessing “charm” and elegance.

Country: Burgundy

比圖澤-普里厄酒莊(Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur)位於法國勃艮第(Burgundy)伯恩丘(Cote de Beaune)產區的沃爾奈(Volnay)產酒村,是該產區內的一座精品酒莊。

比圖澤-普里厄酒莊的葡萄園分佈在伯恩丘的三個產酒村,除了文森特自家酒莊位於沃爾奈村世代傳承的面積為7公頃的葡萄園外,還包括他婚後繼承的位於默爾索村的3公頃葡萄園和位於伯恩的1公頃葡萄園。葡萄園內種植的品種包括黑皮諾(Pinot Noir)和霞多麗(Chardonnay)。園內的土壤排水性能很好,且富含石灰岩,保證了葡萄樹吸收到充足的營養。此外,葡萄樹種在東南朝向的斜坡上,有利於積累熱量,使葡萄充分成熟。

比圖澤-普里厄酒莊釀造的葡萄酒主要為黑皮諾紅葡萄酒和霞多麗白葡萄酒。其中白葡萄酒是在普里厄家族(Prieur family)位於默爾索村的釀酒廠釀造的,而紅葡萄酒則是在酒莊位於沃爾奈村的釀酒廠釀造的。酒莊在釀造白葡萄酒時完全採用全新的橡木桶進行釀造,使得釀出的葡萄酒單寧柔順,口感順滑。酒莊釀出的紅葡萄酒則帶有典型的紅色水果風味,還伴有紫羅蘭的花香。
